TIPS WHEN INVESTING IN MUSIC STOCK

Here are some ways to make money through the music industry:

Stocks and Funds

Many music companies are publicly traded. While record companies are frequently part of larger media conglomerates, purer plays are also available.

Bowie Bonds

David Bowie was one of the musicians to sell the value of his royalties as bonds on the investment market. Royalty-backed bonds have hit the market, allowing investors buy chunks of the income from the sales of back catalogs from famous artists.

Music Collectibles

An investment in music doesn't have to come in the form of a financial vehicle. Musical collectibles can be a solid place to invest money with which you're willing to take some risk.

BEST SOURCE OF STOCK PICKS FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS

We have been tracking ALL of the Motley Fool stock picks since January 2016. That's over 5 years and 120 stock picks. Take a look at their stock picks' performance for the last 5 years:

  • Average return of their 120 picks from 2016 to 2020 is 206%
  • That beats the SP500's 77%
  • 84% of their picks are up
  • 53 of those 120 stocks have doubled

Now, no one can guarantee that their next picks will be as strong, but our 5 years of experience has been super profitable as you can see. They do pick some losers, but the key for investors is to invest equal dollar amounts in all of their picks. So if you have $1,000 to invest in the market each month, buy $500 of each of their 2 monthly stock picks.

Normally the Motley Fool service is $199 per year but they frequently run promotions of 25 to 50% off. CLICK HERE to see their latest promotion and get their next stock pick.
